You can go to Antakya, at the eastern end of Turkey’s Mediterranean coast, by car, bus or plane.
Antakya is not served by train. There are normally trains to Iskenderun, but they are not running now. Otherwise, the nearest train station is north at Osmaniye; Adana is a major rail junction.
Most buses from Aegean, Mediterranean and Central Turkey come via Adana. Antakya has a modern otogar(intercity bus terminal). More…
All road transport (car and bus) from Adana must come over the Belen Pass.
The Hatay Airport (HTY), 19 km north of Antakya at Serinyol (map), is closest, but has fewer flights than does Adana‘s Şakirpaşa Airport. More…
